Lot description
This large oil on canvas scene from Luigi Lucioni (American, 1990-1998) shows a mahogany gateleg table with one half round leaf up. On the table is a group of lavish items, including an elegant silver mirror that reflects the face of a girl. Lucioni’s still life is brilliantly executed in classic academic style, and each element is tangibly realistic. This work comes in a gesso decorated gilt frame.

Born in Malnate, Italy in 1900, Luigi Lucioni became one of the leading figures in American Realism best known for his brilliantly executed academic style. Immigrating to the United States at the age of eleven, he attended Cooper Union, studied under William Auerbach Levy at the National Academy of Design in 1920, and was the recipient of a Tiffany Foundation Scholarship in 1922. Well known for his attention to details, his works have been noted for their heightened sense of realism and their photographic quality, created by the artist’s meticulous attention to detail. After a long and prosperous artistic career, Lucioni died in Union City, New Jersey in 1988.
